The West End's longest running musical, Les Misérables has been enjoyed by over 65 million people in 42 countries and in 22 languages around the globe and is still breaking box-office records as it passes its 30th year in London. The original production, which features direction by John Caird and Trevor Nunn, continues to run at the Queen's Theatre, having transferred from the Palace Theatre in April 2004.

Featuring a stunning score by Boublil and Schönberg, Cameron Mackintosh's original production opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on 8 October 1985, where it went on to become a musical theatre phenomenon. Fans of the show continue to revisit this dazzling original that includes hit songs such as “I Dreamed a Dream”, “Do You Hear the People Sing?”, “Bring Him Home” and “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables”.

Adapted from the original epic novel by Victor Hugo, the musical is set against the backdrop of 19th-century France and tells a powerful and moving story of unrequited love, sacrifice, passion, redemption and revolutionary spirit.

Les Misérables has won a multitude of awards around the globe, and was recently honoured with the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Audience Olivier Award. It has ran on Broadway in three separate productions, and has enjoyed numerous UK tours. An Academy Award-nominated film adaptation of the show opened in 2012 starring Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, and has continued to broaden the appeal of the show.

Don't miss your chance to see this spectacular original production, and one of the West End's most exciting and powerful musicals.

Les Miserables Synopsis: 

Opening in 1815, Les Misérables tells the story of convict Jean Valjean who is released on parole after 19 years on the chain gang. As he finds that his ticket of leave condemns him to be a social outcast, he is embittered by years of hardship, and steals silver from a Bishop who lies to save his life in front of the police. Feeling a divine intervention, Valjean swears to start his life anew, breaking his parole in search of a better life. Inspector Javert commits his life to tracking him down, leading to a dangerous past encounter that haunts him at every turn.

After saving the sick Fantine from a life spent as a prostitute in Montreuil, Pas-de-Calais, Valjean commits himself to looking after her daughter Cosette, becoming a surrogate father to the child. As the pair move to Pairs to once again escape Javert, they become caught up in the student uprising that threatens the peace in the city. Cosette falls in love with the dashing student Marius, and all the characters find themselves juggling their sense of loyalty with love, compassion and the need for redemption.
